She was part of the "Wrecking Crew" group of session musicians along with Glenn Campbell. They played almost all the instruments on The Byrds version of Mr. Tambourine Man because the record company felt the band's own musicians (except Roger McGuinn) weren't competent enough.

I am amazed by how much you continue to "get out" and see young and old acts of various sorts. I envy you, you bastard.

I will say, since March has passed: Bynum!

Lets hope (if you will join me in a secular prayer to the basketball gods?) that everyone stays healthy, and plays as they are capable...if so, no problem with Threepeat; if not, well, yep, they are capable of dropping the ball big time.

Bynum looked like a franchise player during moments of the last series. That said, Chris Paul! How could UNC NOT recruit him when he grew up wanting to go there and lived just down the road?

And while on the topic of bassists.... WILLIE WEEKS!!!!!!!!
